I have no idea why it’s all gone =___=
There are 2 versions of J. Herbin 1670 Bleu Ocean: with and without gold sheen. The one without gold sheen came out as second 1670 anniversary ink in 2012 (the first one is Rouge Hematite in 2010). After J. Herbin released Stormy Gray in 2014 and it became so popular, they re-release Bleu Ocean in 2015 with tons of gold dust.
The 2012 version is at the front of the photo and the newer 2015 version is at the back. The gold sheen is pretty obvious in the first 2 lines that you might wonder if it would clot your pen. Not really clotting but the gold residue will leave some trace within your feeder and/or cartridge. The newer version is slightly lighter than the old version which might due to formula difference.
It has nice flow, high saturation, and about standard drying time for blue ink. The ink itself has a gel-like texture that doesn’t bleed or feather on iPaper UCCU or DoubleA. Overall, I like this bottle but I’m not sure if I can use the gold sheen in office (so just don’t shake when filling up the pen)
CP value: 83/100, you can probably have 2 bottles from 1 – one with no gold sheen and the other with gold sheen overload, lol
